Paul Clemens held the Montgomery Biscuits hitless through 5 2⁄3 innings, but they came back to beat the Mississippi Brave, 5-3, in 10 innings on Monday night at Trustmark Park.

At the end of five innings, the Braves (6-12) led Montgomery (6-12) 3-0, but Henry Wrigley’s two-out, three-run home run tied the game. The home run came off of reliever Luis Avilan, who suffered his third blown save of the season.

Wrigley wasn’t finished. In the top of the 10th inning with runners on second and third, game tied at 3, he hit a soft blooper into right field. Cory Harrilchak dove and tipped the ball but couldn’t make the play. Two runs scored on the double, putting the Biscuits ahead 5-3.
